"We see electric power generation from the combination of our advanced gasification technology together with high efficiency gas turbines, which we call iGas, as an economic and environmentally compelling alternative to the dirty coal-burning power generation of yesteryear," said Robert Rigdon, President and CEO of Synthesis Energy Systems. "We believe iGas can make a meaningful positive impact by delivering economic power from local indigenous resources, such as low quality coals, in an environmentally responsible manner and we are pushing hard together with our friends at Dengfeng Power to make this first iGas power plant a reality. Through the initial project we intend to launch our iGas platform for use in multiple projects both inside China and other global regions needing a clean, low-cost coal to power solution as an alternative to expensive natural gas-based power generation using imported LNG. This is a great example of Growth With Blue Skies and we are pleased to be working with Dengfeng's forwarding-looking Chairman Liu to help develop this important iGas distributed power market," said Rigdon.

HOUSTON, Sept. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Synthesis Energy Systems, Inc. (SES) (NASDAQ:SYMX), a global energy and gasification technology company enabling clean, high-value energy and chemical products from multiple feedstocks, today announced that former member of the SES management team, Mr. Khee Yoong Lee, an accomplished leader with more than ten years' experience in project development related to the power, energy and chemicals industries, has been appointed Director of Commercial Development for China, reporting to Robert Rigdon, SES's President and Chief Executive Officer.
...
Khee Yoong is a well-known and highly respected leader who can get hit the ground running since he is already familiar with the capabilities and benefits of SES's gasification technology and how it can be applied to projects in the newly emerging natural gas replacement and power generation sectors," said Mr. Rigdon. "The timing for Khee Yoong's return is ideal since he can leverage the early successes of our Tianwo-SES JV and the three fast-track projects currently being built for Aluminum Corporation of China. We believe many opportunities exist across China to help owners of aluminum and ceramics facilities by providing a clean, lower cost alternative to natural gas or to convert our syngas into SNG."
"I am very pleased to rejoin the SES team. SES is an exciting company that I have already devoted a large part of my career to. I look forward to working with Robert and the entire team to grow our business in China, where SES's advanced gasification technology can bring clean energy with advantaged economics using the country's vast coal resources," said Mr. Lee.
